Angry Digital Camera not connecting to computer

I have a new Dell computer. I have a olympus digital camera. I hook the camera to the computer to download pictures and my computer is not detecting that the camera is connected. I have downloaded all the camera software and continue to have problems. I used to have an HP computer and never had a problem. I have tried hooking the camera up via serial port and
USB ports with no luck. Help

What do you mean when you say, [sic] "my computer is not detecting that the camera is connected?" What does the software say about the camera?

Do you know if the USB ports are enabled? If it is a new computer then they should be. However, with an older computer they may not be.

What OS is on the computer? Do other USB devices work properly? Do you know that you are telling the software to search the correct serial port? Do other serial devices work on this same serial port?

its just another "drive"

How are you trying to access the camera?

Have you set it up using the wizard?
Go the control panel, printers and other hardware, scanners and cameras. Then click on "add an imaging device".

However, this is not the best, nor easiest method. The best method is to buy a reader for your camera media. Leave it hooked up to your computer. The reader will allow faster transfer of pics and you don't have to mess with the camera. Just plug the memory card into the reader. The reader is accessable just like any other drive. You can access pics using explore, photo software, email programs, etc.
